Pedro Sánchez Arrives In Glasgow To Participate In COP26

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez , has landed this Monday, November 1 in Glasgow (United Kingdom) to participate, accompanied by the Third Vice President and Minister for the Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, in the XXVI Climate Summit of the UN .

” Already in Glasgow to participate in COP26 . Society demands action and leaders must respond,” Sánchez said in a post on his Twitter account.

In this context, the President of the Government has stressed that it is urgent to increase the level of climate ambition in order to keep within reach the objective of limiting the increase in temperature to only 1.5ºC. “Let’s act now!”

The president of the Executive will speak this Monday in the plenary session of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change. Sánchez will be the first head of government to intervene this Monday at the start of the high-level segment.

The Glasgow World Climate Conference has started this Sunday with its first plenary session amid a call for ambition, especially to developed countries, in the objectives of reducing CO2 emissions to preserve the future of the planet’s population.

The official opening ceremony, delayed by about an hour, began with a minute of silence in honor of the victims of the coronavirus pandemic.

COP26 President and British Minister for International Development Alok Sharma then proceeded to underscore the importance of the conference in meeting the goals set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement, including limiting global warming to a maximum of 1 5ºC above pre-industrialization levels.

For its part, the G20, meeting this weekend in Rome, has reached an agreement on the maximum ceiling of 1.5 degrees for global warming, diplomatic sources told Europa Press this Sunday.

This agreement represents a victory over the failed negotiations in July during the meeting of the ministers of Energy and Environment of the G20, in the face of opposition from China and India.
